Alternatively told through the eyes of Sera, a Parsi widow, and Bhima, an elderly housekeeper who must support her orphaned granddaughter, The Space Between Us offers a look at class and gender roles in modern day Bombay. Through triumphs and tragedies, Sera and Bhima share a bond that transcends class and race—a bond shared by two women whose fate always seems to rest in the hands of others, just outside of their control.
